Hospitals may offer world-class treatment for various treatments and disorders, but the rooms that people stay in are often bland and boring and the air can quickly become stuffy. Sending a plant to let the person you are thinking about them can also even help support their recovery. Studies have shown that people with plants and flowers in their rooms tend to have shorter stays in the hospital than those who do not. At Nanz and Kraft of Louisville, we want to help you give this burst of color to your loved ones.
If you want to send a plant or flower to someone you care about, the first step will be to speak with the medical center. You want to verify their plant delivery process and ensure that the patient will be able to receive the gift. You also want to make sure you can pass the florist all the relevant information they need, including the room number of the patient.
Green Plants for Hospital Patients
Green plants can help clean the air and offer a lovely sight, without worries about pollen or fragrance. When looking for the best option, you also want to make sure the plant will not require too much work or light, as patients may struggle with plant care during their illness. Succulents, pothos, and dish gardens can all be excellent choices in this regard. Nanz & Kraft Florists has partnered with the Institute for Healthy Air, Water, & Soil to offer the Healthy Plants Collection to scrub airborne pollutants from the air and improve your indoor air quality! Our Healthy Plants Collection features plants that specialize in cleaning certain places (work, home, hospital).
Flowering Plants for Hospital Patients
Flowering plants can offer some incredible color and vibrancy. You will want to make sure that you do not get anything that will emit too much of a fragrance or pollen to keep the space comfortable for the patient. In general, we find that azaleas make excellent gifts, as do kalanchoe plants. They both offer the right balance of lovely color without creating a burden on patients.
Finding the right plant for your loved one can be a great way to show that you care. Contact us at Nanz and Kraft and let us help you find the perfect selection for your loved one.
